My boys are now both on summer vacation. If my juggling was difficult before, now it just gets more interesting, especially since my husband’s schedule will get busier and busier.
I may not be packing as many lunches or screaming about how the bus is coming, but the time I find in the morning will get swallowed whole by interruptions and activities during the day.
If I want to keep my forward movement, I’ll need to refresh my anti-distraction skills. I’ll need to be prepared for my small windows of writing time. It’s a skill I’ve been working on, but it’s now sink or swim time.
There’s nothing exciting behind the curtain. It’s simple nose to the grindstone.
The Goals – week-9 results
- Spend at least 1-hour a day with my characters- not done.
- Daily progress in writing craft, word count, editing, and/or plotting- not done. Watching your inbox and waiting for your cover to arrive doesn’t count, right? Definitely not done then. I worked on graphics for my upcoming release. Found the lines I want to quote and teasers I want to share. I did finally start a new read through on the WIP and got about 3/4 of the way through or 41 pages. I need to finish my read through and finish the final scene because my cover will arrive and my release day is coming.
- Take care of and be kind to myself (start w/ a relaxing ritual, the healthy journey, and daily breaks from technology)- kind of done. I spent time in my garden this week. It gives me an endless supply of peace. So glad I’ve taken the time every year to nurture it. I didn’t however spend anytime on my healthy journey this week and I can tell.
